Caring for Eggs and Chicks

Presented by Jordan Hyde

Part of the instructions we received with the eggs

The incubator temperature had to be 99.5 degrees

We purchased 24 fertilized eggs and marked them

WITH AN "X" ON ONE SIDE AND AN "O" ON THE OTHER

The eggs had to be turned over twice a day

this is called "candling"

It is used to study the development of the embryo inside the egg

The eggs began hatching on the 21st day

This process is called "pipping"

This is the first chick to hatch

The babies are called "hatchlings"

The poor chick at the bottom died during hatching

Turkens got their name because people thought they were a turkey/chicken hybrid
